External DisplayPort (eDP) device shipments will see a CAGR of over 100 percent from 2009 to 2014, according to a new In-Stat report.

In December 2010, tech companies including Intel, AMD, Dell, Lenovo, Samsung and LG announced that they would stop using LVDS in 2013 and legacy DVI and VGA connectors in 2015, replacing them with DisplayPort and HDMI. In-Stat noted in a press release that this is the most significant announcement in DisplayPort's history, as it opens the market for both external DisplayPort in PCs and monitors and eDP n PCs.

"PC monitor OEMs have been less aggressive in adopting DisplayPort technology, primarily due to cost constraints, but Dell, HP and Apple have been among the leaders in integrating it into their products," said Brian O'Rourke, Principal Analyst at the research firm. "DisplayPort and HDMI will eventually be the only display interfaces left, with DisplayPort becoming prominent across all PCs, while HDMI will be found in consumer PCs."

The research firm also reported that growth of internal DisplayPort (iDP) developed to replace LVDS in DTVs, will be gradual, as chip solutions come down in price, and it compares more favorably to LVDS. It also added that the new DisplayPort 1.2 specification makes significant improvements, including increased data rate, the ability to daisy chain multiple displays, and the capacity to handle bi-directional USB 2.0 data. The Wireless DisplayPort specification, which employs 60GHz WiGig technology, will not be a factor in the market in the near future, according to the firm's press release.
